Many books have been written about how to parent a child effectively, how to become a better parent, and how effective parenting produces better kids. But SACRED PARENTING delves into an entirely different reality: how parenting affects the parent. It explores the spiritual dynamics of parenting, and why caring for children is such an effective discipline in shaping our souls and forming the character of Christ within us. Thomas doesn't tell parents how to handle a chronically sick or rebellious child, but he does help parents find spiritual meaning behind the almost heroic care such children require.

Because SACRED PARENTING is not a "how to" course, it openly admits the difficulties, struggles, and failures that often accompany parenting. And it goes on to show how God uses those trying and discouraging times to build up the parents who experience them. Parents of all children will be encouraged by the examples of how other men and women have successfully handled the challenges and occasional defeats of parenting, and will be inspired by stories that reaffirm the spiritual value of being a parent.

In this six-session small group Bible study DVD, Sacred Parenting, Gary Thomas uses a unique lens to look at parenting, moving beyond raising great children to becoming more holy as a person.

What if one of God's primary intentions for you as a parent isn?t about successfully raising perfect children, but about you becoming more holy? In Sacred Parenting Gary Thomas illustrates how God can transform lessons in raising children into opportunities to grow in the image of Christ.

It will help you and your group, rediscover parenting from a different perspective: as a method of spiritual formation expressly designed by God to shape your soul in ways you could not imagine!

Designed for use with the Sacred Parenting Participant Guide (sold separately), this DVD features six 10-15 minute live sessions with Gary Thomas and will help you dig deeper into learning how God can transform dirty diapers, toddler tantrums, and a teenager's silence into occasions for becoming more like Christ.

Sessions include:
1. The Soul-Transforming Journey of Parenting
2. God-Centered Parenting
3. The Hardest Hurt of All
4. Embracing Our Insignificance
5. Walking on the Wild Side of Parenting
6. The Gold Behind the Guilt

Essential reading for any parent
5 stars By Kate, Dec 09 2014
WOW!  If there was a parenting book that I would recommend to every parent THIS IS THE ONE!  It's not a how to book, there are no step by step instructions to get our children to behave BUT, this book speaks about something much more important, the role God has given children in shaping and changing the hearts of us as parents.  We are so often focused on the other way around, training our children, which is very important.  As we are challenged and blessed by our kids we are also being taught and transformed in our thinking and behaviour.  This book is so Christ centred!  Every aspect of parenting has got this one focus in mind and as a parent of a very difficult child it was so refreshing to read. I look forward to reading more of Gary's books and I will be recommending this one to everyone I know.  I will definitely be reading this one again.
